    If I have a single air flow entry 600 watt HPS with a glass lens how close could I bring the light to my plants with no harm ? Please answer from experience this is the last step of my buying the proper light.

    According to the See More Buds videos you can bring them right down to the tops of the plants like as close at 4-5 inches. As long as your hand stays cool under the light the leaves shouldn't burn either. With the correct ventilation in the room, correct ventilation of the air cooled lights, and good air flow throughout the canopy of your plant I think you would be surprised how close you can get it. The only problem is radiant heat, which the air cooled hood "should" take care of.
